What is the difference between Tony Blair and a Mafia Boss?

According to a reader who sent this to Iain Dale:
One (a) portrays himself as a man of the people and guardian of the community, but extorts large amounts of money from businesses and individuals under the guise of protecting them against future perils whilst actually accumulating vast wealth for himself and his family, (b) is indirectly implicated in the deaths of many people to promote his interests although he is never present at the killings, and (c) assuages his conscience with a superficial adherence to the Catholic church.
The other is an Italian thug.
I think this understates it,frankly, as I know a few Mafia Thugs who are considerably nicer and definitely more truthful and honest than Mr. Bliar.
